6pm Mon 28 Jan 2019: Cockatoo Rise/The Diplomat

COCKATOO RISE VETERANS’ RETREAT: Beautiful views; relaxed atmosphere; 9 hole golf course; close proximity to snow fields, beaches; great fishing and wonderful touring. Run by Greg and Anne Carter, Cockatoo Rise is a welcoming and incredibly inexpensive place for ex and serving Defence personnel and their partners to relax, unwind, and recuperate if needed…. It’s not luxurious.  Greg’s a person with a great belief in a positive mental attitude, and this is clearly reflected in his excellent interview.  Interviewer Helen Meyer

FRED SMITH:  From Afghanistan and Bougainville to Adelaide. Fred has produced many very popular music albums, as well as continuing in his role as a diplomat with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade … but since he’s become a father he spends less time in risky places like Afghanistan and is also touring a lot in Australia …  we asked him when he discovered the power of music making to build bridges.  Interviewer Nicky Page
